EXPLANATION OF SERVICE NUMBERS:
Service numbers fall into two broad categories: simple seven or eight digit numbers (in a few cases fewer digits) for male enlisted personnel, and prefixed serial numbers for other personnel. Regular Army enlisted men who entered the service befor the outset of Selective Service bear seven-digit or lower serial numbers, usually beginning with "6" or"7", as 6974416, Men who enlisted in the Army of the United States have eight-digit numbers beginning with "1", the second digit indicating the Service Command of origin. For example, the serial number 14066025 would indicate that the man enlisted in the Army of the United States in the Fourth Service Command (Southeastern U.S.), men called into federally recognized National Guard service received eight-digit numbers begining with "2", the third digit representing the Service Command: 20107656 indicated a National Guardsman from New England (First Service Command). Men inducted or enlisted through Selective Service were given eight-digit numbers begining with "3" or "4", the second digit representing the Service Command. The prefixed serial numbers for other than male enlisted personnel carry a designated letter: 0- (as in 0-1574257) for male commissioned officers; W- for male Warrant officers; T- for Flight officers of the Army Air Forces; L- for commissioned officers of the Women's Army Corps; V- for WAC Warrant officers; A- for WAC enlisted women; R- for Hospital Dietitians, and M- for Physical Therapy Aides.
